Last chance for Penguin Parade

13 April 2012

The coming week is the last chance to visit the Penguin Parade exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy (RWA). The popular exhibition celebrates the University Library Penguin Archive. Entry is free for children and University of Bristol staff.

The exhibition is a visual feast, and traces the history of Penguin, from its founding by Bristolian Allen Lane in 1935 through the Second World War to the iconic titles and designs we identify with today. 

There are Penguins, Pelicans and Puffins – books for all ages and interests – and plenty of child-friendly activities, including a Roald Dahl DVD to watch. Penguin ‘Make and Take’ workshops run on Sundays from 2pm to 4pm. The exhibition closes at the end of Sunday 22 April.

For further information, please visit the RWA website.
